44.48 Flood of record from Tropical Storm Lee in September 2011. Severe inundation of many townships and villages occurs along the river.
43.5 Flood stage from Hurricane Agnes in 1972. Severe inundation of many townships and villages occurred along the river.
40 Major flood stage. Many homes and roads on both sides of the river are flooded. This includes much of the Village of Meshoppen.
36.34 This is the flood crest from the January 1996 rain and snow melt flood.
34 Extensive flooding occurs in the Myo beach area. Flooding spreads downstream from Tunkhannock to the Falls area. About 100 homes are impacted with first floor flooding.
